A Brand New, Modern Camp for Grades K - 6 An Experience Unlike Any OtherHighwood's Art Squared summer camp is an engaging, educational, and fun arts experience for any student.  The camp explores applications of the arts in the modern world - how do we use art in the 21st century?  Led by a team of talented, cutting-edge artists, this camp allows students to problem-solve, experience new and unique art forms, and explore through guided play and question-based learning.

ArtBlock Subjects

  • Improv - theatre games and activities focused on communication skills, conflict resolution, creativity, and FUN
  • TheatreFIT - a dance/acting/movement/sports mash-up designed to raise appreciation for an active, healthy life
  • 3D Printing - use easy-to-learn computer software to design, create AND print your own 3D art, new gadgets, or figures
  • Digital Music - use modern technology to create your own music - from composing on a keyboard, to exploring percussion tracks, audio effects
  • Upcycling Art - use found or recycled objects in new ways, whether through fashion, engineering, sculpture, or design
  • Photography - explore the world of photography from staging, shooting, and editing your artistic or realistic photos
Each day begins with a session of TheatreFIT; then, the first two ArtBlocks (each focuses on one of our 21st century art forms).  Every ArtBlock contains instruction, guided exploration, and time for kids to get creative and work with the art form in their own way.  Next is lunch, followed by a daily improv workshop.  Finally, we have the third and fourth ArtBlocks (with snack in between), followed by a closing activity with the whole group.The last day of camp gives students a chance to focus on one of their favorite ArtBlock subjects and create something special to take home.Each class provides a unique experience focused on skill development, fun, and creativity.  Classes are tailored for the specific age group and designed to engage each and every student, whether they have experience in the subject matter or not.  Classes are different each session, so students who sign up for multiple sessions get a completely different experience!
